The Plan is to have 2 distinct Zero range areas that will be used to support all competition.

Since Portugal has around 12 hours of sunlight in August, the competition will be separated in 2 sessions during the day (Between Springer and PCP) . This will allow to have people doing different things simultaneously for example a group of people competing while others are in the zeroing area.

A check point will be established to inspect bullet speed and height of seating pillow. Every check will be marked with a sticker. Emergency medical service will be available during shooting hours. Potable water, compressed air, toilets and all required equipment will be provided as well.


Courses sequence

WFTC 2016 organization will be applying the best practices for the sport making the courses sequential and alternated to make sure all shooters will have the same type of wind through the competition no matter the section they are shooting.

This procedure will prevent to have a group of shooters benefiting the fact of being more protected by the wind in a certain section of the course in one specific day.


 

 


Registration - Rifle and Accessories check-up


In order to minimize competition incidents the process of registration will also include the check-up of your air-rifle, including rifle accessories, bean bag and pellet speed validation by a Deputy Marshal. This is a mandatory check up before entering in competition.

The usual check-up during the competition will continue to exists.

Important : To avoid long waiting periods for the registration and rifle check-up, a scheduling period will be determined for each RGB. (click here to have more detail.).
If you miss the scheduling period for your country, it will be possible to make the rifle check-up in the afternoon of Wednesday, 17 August 2016 .

Recommendation: avoid this period if you don't like to wait.

Law in Portugal

According to the Portuguese law any rifle under 24joules of energy is free to circulate in the country. Since we are competing with powers under 16Joules (12 ft/lbs), there will be no problem to enter in Portugal including the airport with your air rifle.


However there are some procedures and restrictions according the Portuguese Laws we all need to follow:

- Invoice or document: The only document the Police may request is the invoice of the rifle with the air rifle number, brand, model, caliber and power (<24j). In order to minimize any issues meetings with the local Police will take place and an invitation will be sent to you. But if you have the invoive, please bring with you. If you have any issues please contact us for clarification.

- Trigger locks: According to the Portuguese law even if you transport your rifle in a Peli Case (locked) you need a Trigger Lock when transporting the air rifle.
For those arriving by plane please take special attention to this matter.

 

 

- Silencers: are considered as a criminal offence. Don't bring these kind of accessories into Portugal.

 

 

- Muzzles are allowed.



Arriving to the International Lisbon Airport

If you are planning to travel by plane you'll probably arriving into the International Lisbon Airport. If that is the case, you will be picking up your luggage (cloths, etc...) from the normal belts and if everything goes as it should be (we have never had any problems) your rifles will be waiting with the local Police.

Go to the "Goods to Declare" just before leaving the airport and ask the Police if your rifles are already in their possession.

Typically the rifles cases takes longer to arrive than your luggage so it's quite common to wait for 15 mins for the rifles.

While you are waiting for your rifes near the police, if you have someone with you, make sure someone will check BELT 13 for your rifle cases (Out of format luggage belt). It's been reported once in the past that the airport services send the air rifles to that Belt. They shouldn't do this but just in case check.

Once the rifles arrive, the police will request your identification and the rifle invoice (check Law in Portugal in this page for more information). The Police will also request to open the rifle cases to check Caliber, Rifle number, trigger lock, brand, model and power described in the invoice).

If you need any additional information do not hesitate to contact us.
